Saturday, October 12 – Open House





2013-harvest-26This morning we crushed a little under 8 tons of Syrah. This is our first Syrah and will be doing Syrah all next week. They tried to get done before noon so as not to get in the way of our Open House visitors – more on that later.

The images show the picking bins full of grapes that have been stemmed and crushed. Next they stir up the bins and then proceed to load the fermenting tanks. The real work is cleaning up.
